Deep Purple have announced the first series of dates for The Long Goodbye tour in support of their forthcoming album, “Infinite.”
Fueling rumors that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band may be winding down their career after almost 50 years, the group unveiled a 5-show UK trek for November 2017 with special guests Europe.
Tickets for the UK dates will go on sale on December 9 at 9am GMT.
Recorded with legendary producer Bob Ezrin, the follow-up to 2013’s "Now What?!" will mark the group’s 20th studio release.
“Infinite” was recorded earlier this year in Nashville and will be launched with the lead single in late January.
Deep Purple were inducted into the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in New York in April alongside fellow honorees Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Chicago and N.W.A.
The Rock Hall chose to induct most of Deep Purple’s first three lineups including Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Rod Evans, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes.
